|Ultima Vez - Asaguare|
Just to contrast with my latest tech/electro submissions, this is a very softly flowing ballad. Almost pure acappella - I've only added some shy percussion and a nice guitar solo. Please lean back and relax... Vocals, lyrics: SilviaO

|Yalla - Asaguare|
Creole Folk Some nice folk style dance music. The other day a mate and I were discussing odd measures, in particular 9/8. Never did such rhythms before, and I was wondering how such a song would turn out. Well, the playing wasn't very hard, but the singing really needs concentration. When you had 4/4 and 3/4 for decades, a sudden 9/8 doesn't feel familiar, I can tell, but in the end it was fun and the result seems to sound pretty much authentic.

|No Catcher In The Rye - Asaguare|
Pop Ballad When I had to read Salinger in school I found 'The Catcher In The Rye' was too depressive. About 20 yrs later I rediscovered the book and enjoyed it.

|Zebroid - Asaguare|
Improvising over a whole-tone-scale - which ressembles drawing lines and stripes on the guitar's fretboard - made me imagine a herd of zebras, chilling and browsing in a central African savannah. Hence the title. Call it a laid-back zebra atmosphere... but always a certain thrill in the air: a predator possibly squats behind the next bush.
Keywords: instrumental; ambient; jazz; guitar
|Dingding Thing - Asaguare|
This was my Free-Tibet-contribution and a rather weird fusion of different audio elements and styles. The idea was born when I found an acapella sung by Sa Dingding during an interview. She was said to be the rising star in modern asian/pacific pop scene and might have been the first eastern artist being able to enter western world top charts. Well, guess this really could happen - she already got several music awards, and her sorta traditional Mongolian singing/intonation style is embedded in w...

|Danse Macabre - Asaguare|
Experimental Essay - spoken poem: 'Danse Macabre' by Charles Baudelaire. Found a nice recording of this Baudelaire-poem, read by a female French. Of course I had to process her performance via vocoder to make her kind of chant chords and match the musical background track (Saronni's version of 'colors shift'). I also inserted a couple of guitar melodies to create a bit more atmosphere.

|Kufstein - Asaguare|
Synthpop version of a traditional Austrian folk song. For those who don't know the original version: it's a quite sentimental and drippy waltz in major key with simple lyrics and joyful melody, usually performed by vocalist/choir and a good amount of strings. My electrified version is in minor key and the lyrics are sung via vocoder. To maintain authenticity, I've thrown in some yodel clips. Lyrics: Karl Ganzer

|Kwikchat - Asaguare|
Dancefloor beats with Japanese voices. You know I love to play with vocals, and this one embeds a postprocessed, fairly experimental speech track. Some might get nervous about this constant background bushwah, but I love it - a funny little murmuring creek.
Keywords: experimental; dancefloor; japanese; vocals
|Rose In June - Asaguare|
Traditional cajun waltz style folksong. Don't listen to this if you're under 50. Play it to your mother, or even better, your grandmother... she will love it.

|Green Lilacs - Asaguare|
Traditional Celtic ballad Probably one of the most famous english folk songs, also known as 'Once I Had A Sweetheart', and has been a favourite of mine since I started guitar exercises in the 70s. However, the guitar is not dominating in this version; I tried to create a more common medieval atmosphere.

|Earn A Quran - Asaguare|
Holy reading over Minimal Deep Tech-House. Although I'm atheist and never cared about political/religious correctness, I had to drop this one as pure provocation; just to satirize the recent hype of 'Burn a Quran' (which IMO is a silly idea anyway). From a musical point of view I love listening to any meditative recitings, and after a couple of western and eastern mixdowns it's just another one in a series of spiritual chanting tunes...

|Que Pena - Asaguare|
Latin Dancefloor (vocals/lyrics: Tamy) Don't know much about the Portuguese language and I'm an even worse dancer, haha, but when I found Tamy's pella, I just had to give it a try. The title means 'what a pity' and although the mix was intended to sound technoish, it came out rather triphop and mainstream... pffft, what a pity, but it's ok - so it has got a nice latin groove for moody moments...

|Fish In The Wall - Asaguare|
Odd sound/voice collage, actually much of nonsense, also embedding a nice poem by Necromanos. A project that started without concrete musical concepts, just the idea of creating a sort of surreal dadasim ambience.

|Shoshaloza - Asaguare|
African Ethno, weird acappella mashup. This almost became a choral cluster - the first version had 8 voice layers. But to preserve at least a little bit of transparency, I removed some and ended with 4 layers plus percussion. May still sound confusing, anyway it's interesting to pick and trace individual voices. Vocal artists: Mtuba Thulisa, Mandyleigh Storm, Vieux Farka Touré, Emily

|Around Dusk - Asaguare|
Tony, a friend of our family, once was playing just for fun on a midi guitar in my brother's home studio. They happened to record a couple of bars with a choir/bells pad sound setting, and when I listened to it the other day, I thought "hey, that's nice, let's see how it works in an arrangement". Hence I surfed around, collected quickly some clips/loops here and there, without having a plan or an imagination of how this weird blend would sound like...
